Your Society

Financial support for your charity or cause

If you're a registered charity, a charitable cause, or a customer who wishes to nominate their favourite charity, here’s further details of how the Charitable Foundation could help.

How to apply for funding

The Charitable Foundation is here to support registered charities and good causes in local communities across the UK where Society employees and customers live and work.

The Charitable Foundation’s aim is to help people with special needs, people who are elderly or vulnerable, people suffering hardship, and animal causes - so if your charity or cause fits within these sectors and is in need of a specific item, please read the guidelines and criteria.

Read our guidelines and criteria

For the Charitable Foundation's Trustees to consider your application, it must meet our criteria. Please note that as our funds are limited, we regrettably can't fund every application, even if it does meet our criteria.

Please also be aware, we are unable to support contributions towards large funds, expenses, fees, salaries, administration, research or sponsorship of individuals and events. We also can't support the advancement of religious or political activities (including specific sectors of the community), mainstream schools and other local or government funded bodies.


Application form

The Charitable Foundation is no longer able to accept paper application forms or requests for support received by letter. Before completing the online application form below, please make sure you have reviewed the guidelines and criteria to ensure that your cause is eligible to apply.
